Greetings,

Here is the next SFBSA Open water swim:



We will offer two distances:  1.5 miles and .75 mile.  Both swims are
point to point and finish at the Central Park Community Center (which is
where we meet and register).  The 1.5 mile swim starts at Erckenbrack
Park where you literally swim mere feet from peoples homes and
backyards.  Dont be surprised to see people sitting 10 feet away from
you having brunch (Grey Poupon anyone?).  The .75 mile swim starts at
the boat ramp under the Foster City Blvd. Bridge.  We will carpool you
to both starting locations.  Carpools leave promptly from the Central
Park Community Center at 9:00 a.m.

Directions (also see map on reverse):
From the north, take Highway 101 south, go east on Highway 92 and get
off at the Foster City Blvd. exit.  Make an immediate right onto Metro
Center Blvd.  Then turn left onto Shell Blvd.  Go past Hillsdale Blvd.
and turn into the parking lot right south of the Central Park Community
Center.
From the south, take Highway 101 north, get off at Hillsdale Blvd. and
proceed east until you come to Shell Blvd.  Turn right and pull into the
parking lot of the Central Park Community Center.
From the East Bay, take Highway 92 west across the San Mateo Bridge,
get off at Foster City Blvd. southbound.   Turn right (west) at
Hillsdale Blvd. and proceed to Shell Blvd. where you will make a left
and then turn into the parking lot of the Central Park Community Center.

As always, the objective of SFBSA is to provide safe and inexpensive
opportunities to improve your open water swimming skills and to gain
confidence.  Our "workouts" are not races and you do not have to be
good, fast or an Olympic hopeful - you just have to want to swim in the
wide open.  Swims cost a nominal fee of $3 for SFBSA members and $5 for
non-members.  You must show your U.S. Masters membership card.  No
membership card - no swim - no exceptions.  If you recently joined or
renewed your U.S. Masters and do not have your card, call me before the
swim to discuss your individual situation.

8:15 a.m.)

NOT! Due to heavy rains, the bacterial count is not deemed safe for open water
swimming.

Sheesh! How much indoor cycling and super circuit can one do?
